Holly Butcher, a 27-year-old from Grafton in NSW, Australia, recently lost her battle with Ewing’s sarcoma, a rare form of cancer that tend to affect young people. 27 years old.
As she came to terms with her mortality, Holly decided to write an emotionally heart-wrenching letter on Facebook about the lessons she learned, telling readers her experience made her come to value every second of her time on earth. “I’m 27 now. I don’t want to go,” she wrote. “I love my life. I am happy…I owe that to my loved ones. But the control is out of my hands.”
Give your loved ones a big hug tonight.
